This vintage black woven straw hat has an interesting, almost tri-corne shape, with a rolled brim edge; it is pointed in the front. It has a band of black knit on the under brim, which follows the shape of the straw, and also points to the front.
It has a delightful embroidered label of a jockey (female) on a horse, holding a hat box, with the horse's mane spelling out "winner".
Jacob Stein and the Winner Hat Manufacturing Co. was found in a 1925 NYC directory, and there was also reference to the same Winner Hat Manufacturing Co, Inc in the 1940s/1950s.
This is in excellent condition.
